Corporate Support

Why partner with Eikon?

For a Surrey-based company, there’s no better way to make a difference to the next generation.

We are the largest youth charity in Surrey: We work in schools, youth centres and the wider community, reaching around 10,000 young people each year.

We work with your colleagues’ and customers’ children: Nearly 90% of Surrey schools are using our materials to improve young people’s wellbeing and resilience – so your support will likely benefit children that you know.

We need to invest in the next generation: Children’s services in Surrey are so stretched that they can only intervene when a young person reaches crisis point. Eikon believes in prevention, and helping early on, before a crisis can develop. With your company’s help, we can offer the support that all the children in our communities need to become confident, thriving young adults.

“We understand, more than ever, that not everybody has the start in life that we enjoyed. Eikon is an awesome team that proactively helps less fortunate young people in our local communities. As well as being involved directly with the charity, we want to raise as much awareness as possible for them.” – Matt and Jonny, Clownfish Events

What about your company?

Partnering with Eikon brings benefits to your company too:

  • Being seen as a company that cares about the local community and children.
  • Customers and employees feel they are making a difference by being connected to your business – they are more likely to stick with you.
  • Increased job satisfaction for employees involved in fundraising or volunteering.
  • Team-building opportunities when colleagues take on a fundraising challenge together.
  • Saving on training costs – employee volunteering opportunities are often as effective as formal training programmes.
  • Demonstrate your corporate social responsibility by benefitting a charity close to home.

How could you help?

There are lots of ways that a corporate partner can support Eikon.

  • Select us as your Charity of the Year
  • Form a staff team and take on a challenge. Staff from Clownfish Events completed the 2019 London Marathon in aid of Eikon.
  • Donate your expertise. Amber Employment Services help us advertise our staff vacancies.
  • Donate your office space. We always need meeting rooms – do you have a space we could borrow?
  • Hold a fundraising event. Could you put on a quiz night or summer party and sell tickets in aid of Eikon?
  • Mention Eikon at your corporate events. We could send a speaker to say a few words about the charity and have a collection box available.
  • ‘Match fund’ any money your staff or customers raise for Eikon.
  • Donate a percentage of your annual turnover.
  • Give Eikon a year-end or Christmas ‘bonus’.
  • Encourage your staff to volunteer. We are always looking for volunteers to get involved with our work on the ground, mentoring and supporting young people. Could you give your staff the opportunity to get involved?
  • Mention our work on social media and share our posts.
